Juvenile Delinquency in Sunflower, MS

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Sunflower County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Mississippi often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.

Of that total, 69% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 115 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, Sunflower County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Sunflower County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
